Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Edward (1917-2002) is our grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his five children. In his honor, this American Pale Ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, our ale yeast and water from Edward’s well. It is unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and dry hopped. Aromatic and flowery, with impressions of citrus and pine, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Edward.

85 IBU

Pale and Caramel malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; House Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Bought fresh at the brewery 4/19/14.

Poured from the 750ml growler into a Hill Farmstead stemmed tulip.

a: Cloudy orange with an inch tall white head which receded to rocky surface foam and patterned lacing.

s: Strong citrus.

t: Orange/grapefruit under a moderate to wicked hop bite. Bitter finish mellows out somewhat later..

m: Medium, fine body. Carbonation tingle on the tongue is persistent.

o; Great as a top flight American Pale Ale or DIPA. Deliciously citrusy with 85 IBUs to let you know it means business. A new favorite for sure, another reaffirmation that it was worth all the extra driving (3 hours round trip from Waitsfield) and line standing (an hour and a quarter, which I understand is about half of normal for a Saturday!) and money ($86 for 5.75 total liters or about $5.50 per 12 ounces including $19 for bottles) to get Hill Farmstead brews. Edward's relatively low ABV could make it the best session Pale Ale in existence.
